The Poetic Hivemind – Fabian Frei

The Poetic Hivemind is a quiet app that asks you to write a poem/text to a given theme everyday.

Inspired by the dérive of Guy Debord the app will give you a theme, a paragraph or two, that should inspire you to see your mundane surroundings in a different, maybe even more romantic and poetic, way.

This continuos occupation with texts and poems should strengthen your poetic intention. The involvement in the collective authorship of training an AI to generate poems should alleviate fears that come with expressing one self.

This project is part of my master thesis in the Interface Cultures program of the Arts University Linz.
